My Approach to Helping
I see all people as striving to lead the best life possible, and to cultivate deep and meaningful relationships often in the face of unexpected obstacles. And so I believe that every person can benefit from the support of therapy and counseling as they face the challenges of life. As we work together, we will create a space for you to explore your concerns, and make meaning of your life in ways that liberate you to achieve your dreams. We will also examine the ways in which power operates in your life and external systems have informed your life.

I am passionate about working with couples, individuals, and families to create and nurture the lives and relationships that they desire.

I also enjoy working with emerging professionals of color, and women as they develop their careers.
How Psychotherapy Can Help
The psychotherapy, counseling, talking space is a place where you say what is on your mind, what you are feeling or struggling with, and be heard, accepted, and validated. You may also be gently encouraged to challenge your thinking, try on new ways of being or doing, or to take a leap in order to be the person you desire to be in the world and have the relationships for which you may be longing.
